Depot offered these hollies at three different price points: $17.99, $19.99 and $27.99. I purchased the $27.99, expecting them to be fairly large, vs. the less expensive options. Prior reviews stated that these arrived at 28-30 inches in height. The shrubs I received were barely 13-14 inches; the plants were barely taller than the pots they arrived in and not as pictured in Home Depot's listing. Had I ordered the $17.99 version, would I have received seedlings? Overall, not too satisfied with the order. I give the rating a second star because the plants arrived on-time, healthy and packaged well.

Healthy plant purchase in November
I placed my order for a 2.25 gallon sky pencil holly in early NOV 2020. The plant was in transit for 5 days - from NC to NY. The plant was healthy and measured 30 inches from the base of the plant to the top - 40 inches including the planter it came in. The holly arrived with small white flowers and black berries. I plan to keep the holly in a planter/container and move the plant around to figure out its final position in the yard. In a container, I also find it easier to get to know the plant better. I will plant the holly in-ground in the Spring. During the winter, I've read the holly should be tied to avoid any damage from heavy snow that may cause the branches to splay. Happy with the health and condition of my new holly.

I purchased two of these pencil shrubs to go on either side of a fountain on my patio. I was concerned about purchasing them online, because I didn’t know how well they would ship. To my joy and surprise, these shrubs arrived healthy and vibrant looking. I have had them a few weeks now, and they still seem to be doing well.

The shrub arrived in good, healthy condition. It survived a week in the garage waiting for the ground to dry out enough to plant it, and is now doing very well as part of the landscape.
